Season 1, Episode 9

Indiana State Fair/Old Canal Days

The Indiana State Fair is one of the oldest fairs in the country, with some of the best fair foods around. Noah constructs, and devours a Colossal Grilled Cheese Sandwich with the help of the state dairy association. Next he takes the classic elephant ear to the next level by packing it full of fruit filling before frying it up. YaYa's Tomato Balls, a Greek family favorite, is his final dish of the day. Then it's over to neighboring Illinois for Old Canal Days in Lockport. Noah samples some insanely loaded potato bites before chowing down on Chicago-style pizza pie. A uniquely sweet donut treat rounds out another day of carnival eating.
